Two and a half years ago¹ (woah, time goes fast!), we formed the
initial Fedora.next Working Groups — three for the Cloud, Workstation,
and Server editions, and two more for exploring the "Fedora Rings"
concept, Base and Environments & Stacks.
On Monday, the Fedora Council unanimously approved an update to this
structure as part of the next phase of the Modularity Objective². We’re
putting Environments & Stacks on hold for now (activity had effectively
come to a halt anyway), and creating a new Modularity Working Group
which will include the Base Working Group functions among its
responsibilities. Details including the mission statement are at
To nominate yourself, add your name to the list at
along with a brief description of your current involvement with Fedora
and plans for participation in this group. Note that this will be a
highly technical working group. We're looking particularly (but not
exclusively) for representation from the previous Environments & Stacks
and Base WGs, Release Engineering, Infrastructure, Quality Assurance,
and the Security Team.
Self-nominations will close at April 18, 2016 00:00 UTC. Langdon White,
as Objective Lead, will select initial membership, with the approval of
the Council. As with previous WGs, this will be an independent
subcommittee of FESCo, and the group will select a liaison who will
attend FESCo meetings and facilitate communication.
